The 1994 Green Bay Packers season was the team's 74th in the National Football League. The Packers posted a 9–7 record for their third straight winning season. 1994 marked the first of 8 seasons in which Packers' quarterback Brett Favre would throw more than 30 touchdown passes. It also marked the second season in which he started all 16 games for the Packers, starting a record-breaking starting streak which would continue throughout his career. This was the final season that the Packers played at Milwaukee County Stadium; they played home games exclusively at Lambeau beginning in 1995. Three Packers had the distinction of being named to the NFL’s All-Time 75th Anniversary Team: Reggie White, Don Hutson, and Ray Nitschke. After defeating the Detroit Lions 16–12 in the wild-card round of the playoffs, the season ended in a 35–9 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in an NFC divisional playoff game.
Despite another stellar season, Brett Favre, for the first time in his career, was not eligible for the Pro Bowl.
